jcputterhi, i have a question regarding package version in LTS releases of ubuntu.07:26
jcputteri need to install a specific version of openjdk-7-jdk that i need to install, if i browse the repo i find the package however doing apt-cache policy the package is not available07:27
jcputteralso when trying to install that version apt complains that it cannot find that package07:28
jcputterany help07:28
cpaelzerjcputter: apt-get policy will get you what currently is most recent and should be used07:55
cpaelzerjcputter: how did you try to install the old version07:55
cpaelzerjcputter: as long as it is in the archive you should be able to try with apt-get install package=version07:55
cpaelzernote that you might have to take care of dependency resoltion on your own in that case07:56
cpaelzeryou can list mulitple packages with their versions in the install commandline to do so07:56
cpaelzerjcputter: on trusty e.g. you should still have those three in archive http://paste.ubuntu.com/22891459/07:59
ronatorhi. what would be the best way on ubuntu to switch to systemd-networking after upgrading from ubuntu 14 to 16.04.1? I heard the ubuntu camp decided not to force old installations to switch to new interface naming scheme. I would like to switch and I am looking for a reliable howto.08:00
jcputteri've tried installing the package with apt-get install package=version however apt complains it cannot find the package however i do see it in the repo08:10
cpaelzerjcputter: which release are you on?08:14
cpaelzerjcputter: and what version are you trying to install?08:14
cpaelzerjcputter: and what jdk are you trying to install?08:19

cpaelzerI don't know if there is a "somewhere" to get the old formerly publsihed package (there might be but I don't know)08:47
cpaelzeryou find a verson closer than what you want in debian oldstable 7u79-2.5.5-1~deb7u1 - but in general installing forced versionsn and very old things is the start to break your system either by dependenceis or security risks IMHO08:49

ktt9Hello. I have a problem with preseeding ubuntu-server installation. I use repacked installation .iso, but I don't modify squashfs image, instead I choose to store my preseed.cfg on separate image. So the problem is that preseed/early_command in kernel cmdline seem to work AFTER preseed/file since 16.04 server, and not BEFORE, as in earlier versions of Ubuntu. And I use early_command to mount separate medium with preseed.cfg.10:39
ktt9Am I right about order of preseed/-operations? And if I am, what are my options now?10:40
bekkspreseed/early_command is run right before the partitioning.11:02
ktt9Hmm... I tried to pass preseed/early_command without passing preseed/file and it worked, but of course installation proceeded in manual mode.11:04
bekkswhat does your preseed/file do actually?11:04
ktt9preseed/file specifies path to preseed.cfg. And it does all the things. Package installation, language, timezone, keyboard layout. Install is fully automated.11:06
bekksSo you could use the preseed/early_command in your preseed/file, right?11:07
ktt9No, I can't. preseed.cfg is on separate medium, and I used early_command passed to kernel to mount that medium.11:09
bekksah, I see. ok, maybe you could use another method of deploying it then, like not requiring a mount, but serving it using http, e.g.?11:09
bekksThats what I do for my preseed/kickstart install, I'm serving all files required using http.11:10
ktt9That may be an option. I now trying to tell the kernel to mount all media somehow, or to bypass init without repacking squashfs image. Repacking is also an option, btw.11:11

ivoksMASM: are md1 and md3 mounted?15:38
MASMI don't know, i think md1 is mounted15:55
MASMsorry for last a lot, I was looking for information15:56
MASMivoks: I think md1 is mounted, http://paste.ubuntu.com/22922653/15:56
ivoksMASM: so, in your comment you say you installed on sda15:57
ivoksMASM: but mount shows that your / is on md115:57
ivoksMASM: and i can assume that md3 is a PV used by vg00 VG15:58
MASMI think i'm in md1 that has /dev/sda16:00
MASMand i installed all programs in it16:00
MASMand raid are not sincronized16:00
MASMand /dev/sda has some read failure16:00
MASMthat show in the test16:00
MASM20 % ~16:00
cpaelzerjamespage: are coming to host the HO?16:00
cpaelzerjamespage: since I joined first it passed all the "authoenticate others" to me16:01
ivoksMASM: output at http://askubuntu.com/questions/809823/error-raid1-not-unsynchronized-a-degradedarray-event-had-been-detected-on-md-d shows that sda is not part of raids16:02
ivoksmd1 : active raid1 sdb1[1]16:02
ivoksmd3 : active raid1 sdb3[0]16:02
ivoksno sda there16:02
MASMit means16:03
MASMthat i'm in sdb?16:03
ivoksit means you are in md116:03
ivoksand md1 currently only has sdb1 in it16:03
ivoksyou have two raids; md1 (sdb1 and something that's missing) and md3 (sdb3 and something that's missing)16:04
MASMAnd what i need to do?16:06
MASMrenplace sda ? and config raid software?16:07
ivoksMASM: judging by your smart tests, your sda might die at some point16:07
ivoksMASM: you can still add it back to raids, but expect to be buying a new disk at some point16:07
ivoksMASM: mdadm --manage /dev/md1 --add /dev/sda116:08
ivoksMASM: mdadm --manage /dev/md3 --add /dev/sda316:08
ivoksthat will add those two partitions to those two raids16:09
ivoksMASM: and then you can check /proc/mdstat to see progress of syncronization16:09
ivoksnote; whatever you have on sda1 and sda3 will be deleted16:10
ivoksbut judging by your /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf, this is what your raids were like before sda got kicked out16:11
ivoks(and it will get kicked out again)16:11
ivoksso, start buying a new disk :)16:11
MASMivoks: i will not lost information with this commands?, what is the reference to copie information, what is the reference to copie information?16:11
ivokslost information?16:12
ivoksyou had raid1 (md1), made of sad1 and sdb116:12
ivoksthose partitions (sda1 and sdb1) were identical16:12
ivokslinux kicked sda1 out of md1 because the disk is dying16:12
ivoksit did the same with md3 and sda3 (for the same reason)16:13
ivoksyou can re-add sda1 and sda3 to their raids, but if the disk is bad, it will get kicked out of the raid again16:13
MASMivoks: ok, thank, i will send a mail to server support to specify that sda is dying16:14
MASMand when i they change the disk, the server automatic sincronized the disks?16:15
ivoksbecause new disk will have no partitions16:15
MASMivoks: or i need to copy the partitions, and sincronize it?16:15
ivoksyou will have to create partitions16:15
ivoksand then re-add those partitions in md1 and md316:16
MASMivoks: Thanks for your help ivoks, I really appreciate your help16:18
MASMivoks: just one more question16:18
ivoksMASM: keep in mind that support probably won't be able to do anything with 'replace sda' information. they will prefer serial number of the disk (see your smartctl output)16:19
MASMivoks: for resuming, i'm in md3 that has sdb, that the server is using, sda is kickout, all my information is on sdb, right?16:20
ivoksMASM: right16:21
MASMivoks:  and when they replace it i need to copie the partition, and sincronized it again adding the disk, but beffore i need to delete the sda and add the new disk?16:22
MASMand RAID1 will mirror sdb to the new dev?16:22
ivoksMASM: https://www.howtoforge.com/replacing_hard_disks_in_a_raid1_array#-adding-the-new-hard-disk (just notice that they replaced sdb)16:23
ivoksso, don't just copy-paste16:23
ivoksyou would do:16:23
ivokssfdisk -d /dev/sdb | sfdisk /dev/sda16:23
ivoksmdadm --manage /dev/md1 --add /dev/sda116:23
ivoksmdadm --manage /dev/md3 --add /dev/sda316:23
ivoksmkswap /dev/sda216:24
ivoksswapon -a16:24
ivoks*after you replace sda with new disk*16:24
sarnoldivoks: coool, thanks :) I haven't taken the time yet to learn how to feed, care for, and nurture my mdadm raid, hehe16:25
MASMivoks: Thanks a lot men, I really appreciate your help16:25

gaughensolarce, that was changed due to support for lxd. Odd_Bloke here can probably do a better job giving details, and advising on a path fwd17:13

Odd_Blokesolarce: However, lxd uses link-local IPv6 to provide networking to containers.17:14

aroonihey folks;  i'm running ubuntu 14.04 LTS server on a VPS.  i'd like to upgrade it to 16.04; any considerations i must make before doing so?  i'm running a few wordpress/woocommerce sites off it.17:41
sarnoldarooni: there's no php5 on 16.04 LTS, be sure your applications can cope17:41
arooniah ha.17:41
arooniso no way to put php5 on it?17:42
solarcearooni: if you can swing some downtime, stopping the VPS and making a snapshot before you upgrade is a good path17:42
OerHeksarooni, vps-vendors tweak their images heavily, ask them for a fresh 16.0417:42
sarnoldI understand ondrej's got a ppa with it, but that's probably it17:42
aroonihmm.... cool17:42
arooniso you would NOT reccommend the upgrade?17:43
OerHeksarooni, indeed. ask your vendor too17:43
sarnoldthere's no rush, 14.04 LTS will be supported for a few more years, and maybe you deploy the new one when apps are prepared to handle it17:43
arooniis there a compelling reason to be on 16.04 over 14.04?17:55
aroonibesides the longer window of support ?17:55
OerHeksyou can answer that yourself with these releasenotes https://wiki.ubuntu.com/XenialXerus/ReleaseNotes17:56

seeebHi guys, I have a couple of scripts in /etc/init/ to start/stop something and I need that to start on boot. Currently is not doing it and there is nothing about them in /etc/init.d  what technique should I use to make them autostart? Thanks18:54
sarnoldseeeb: what release are you using?18:56
sarnoldseeeb: /etc/init/ is for upstart configurations; /etc/init.d/ is for older sysv-init style initscripts. If you've got _scripts_, then it's probably best to put them into the /etc/init.d/ directory and use update-rc.d to create all the symlinks that are used for the sysv-compatibility mode18:57
sarnoldseeeb: if it's an upstart configuration instead, then you get to debug why it isn't working :) hehe18:57
seeebI think is upstart yeah, so they should already be starting up you think?18:57
sarnoldprobably; can you pastebin the file? someone might be able to spot a problem18:58
seeebsarnold: they start (and even restart alone if killed)  but they don't do that on boot18:58
seeebok let me do that..18:58
sarnoldwhat's the filename? I think the /etc/init/ directory requires files to be named with .conf at the end..18:59
seeebthey are18:59
seeebHere is /etc/init/staging-app-admin.conf for example https://gist.github.com/sebastianconcept/abbe9d7720224ff17e47434a0888038b19:03

sarnoldstart on started mongodb and runlevel [2345]19:05
sarnoldseeeb: .. e.g. does mongodb start? :)19:05
seeebmongo starts alone by itself on boot19:08
seeebbut the ones that are like this one does not19:09
sarnoldseeeb: hrm, I never made 'complicated' upstart configurations.. that surely looks normal enough though19:09
sarnoldseeeb: flailing around, I think maybe try removing the "and runlevel [2345]" bit19:10
seeebright, trying that19:10
sarnoldseeeb: ah, I forgot my #1 debugging step -- is there anything in the logs? /var/log/upstart/* or /var/log/syslog or ... ?19:12
seeebcool, will check but now need to wait the reboot heh19:13
jge_Hey all, good afternoon. I'm trying to extend a VG using LVM but when I try creating a logical partition it says "No free sectors available"19:15
jge_any ida?19:15
seeeblots of logs sarnold! there is an exception about failing to connect to mongo, maybe it needs to start a bit delayed. Do you know if that's doable with upstart?19:21
sarnoldseeeb: I -think- the solution to that is along these lines: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/cookbook/#signals19:23
sarnoldseeeb: .. you'd have the mongo configuration emit something like mongo-started and have this one 'start on mongo-started'19:23
